Oakland Event Benefits Fire Station

Brewski, a British Labrador retriever, will be the grand marshal in Saturday’s fire truck parade in Oakland. Brewski knows tons of tricks and has a huge following on TikTok.

OAKLAND – The Oakland Area Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for a big Saturday with a fundraiser for the fire department. TruckApalooza Oakland brings fire engines and big trucks, ambulances and bulldozers and more together to allow kids of all ages to explore and enjoy.

TikTok star Brewski will serve as the grand marshal of the fire truck parade that kicks off the event at 10 a.m. The fundraiser will be held in downtown Oakland and runs until 2 p.m. A Kids Zone featuring a free bounce house, games, along with t-shirts and fire helmets for sale, will keep the fun going.

Brewski, a British Labrador retriever, plays golf, drives a lawnmower, fishes, and picks fruit and vegetables from the garden. His human, Chance Crawford of Houston, Miss., is now training Brewski to sound the fire truck sirens for his debut in Oakland. He has amassed a growing following on TikTok with more than 4.5 million views of his fishing video and more than eight million views of the golfing video.

Crawford continues to train Brewski on new tricks and Brewski will be showing off his signature moves and more during the TruckApalooza. Brewski and Crawford are @heytakeachance on TikTok.

Food trucks and arts and crafts vendors plus an art show and sale are part of the day. The family of Carol Denham has donated dozens of pieces of her art collection to the Fire Department. In addition, the Chamber will be offering raffle tickets on an assortment of products donated for the event. A bake sale will also be a part of the day.

There will be special activities for kids throughout the day. Attendees will also learn how to become a volunteer fire fighter. A corn hole tournament for fire departments is scheduled at high noon with the winning fire department collecting a cash prize.
